OSU has absolutely dominated Michigan the last 16 years overall, I see no reason why it stops this week with all that's on the line and being at Ohio State.

GO BUCKEYES!

I couldn't be more stoked for this game. I LOVE that it's an early game too, I love waking up and having competitive rivalry football first thing in the morning.

  1. Home-field advantage to OSU
  2. QB advantage to OSU because of Speight's questionable health
  3. Playing-better-right-now advantage to OSU: Michigan is coming off its two worst weeks of the season
So...OSU is the clear favorite. However, I could see defense winning most battles on both sides of the ball. If this is a defensive bloodbath, this could go either way, and might down to a few key (quirky?) plays: turnovers, blocked punts, 4th down conversions, etc.

Just about everything points to OSU winning this. And to be honest, I don't really care either way, I just love rivalry games. But for some reason, something in my gut tells me that Michigan wins this one.

Ohio state fans are too obnoxious for my liking. Never liked that school. Plus I always had a soft spot for Michigan due to my high school having the same name "Wolverines" & same colors. Greatest football uniforms! Go Blue!!!

osu is clearly the better team and the superior program, inexperience of the squad scared me all season but they rose up to the challenge every time. i actually feel better about this game than i did about msu, michigan wont sneak up on them.

should be helluva atmosphere, 06 game was during my junior year and that whole week was tits.

Is this the highest ranked the two teams combined have ever been ranked?

I'm somewhat impartial, I don't really love or hate either of these schools. But for the sake of not having some bull **** playoff where somehow two B1G schools sneak in, lets go Michigan!

Smart choice. I'd love to see OSU fans salty over their team not getting in over a team like Washington. That would really make my day. :)
